Vectrus secures $329m contract to support US multinational operations

Vectrus Systems has secured a contract modification worth more than $329m to support the US Army's base operations internationally.

Under the agreement, the company will provide security support services to the US Army base operations in Kuwait.

Work under the contract will be conducted in the Kuwait area of operations.

Vectrus CEO Ken Hunzeker said: "The Kuwait Base Operations and Security Support Services contract provides full spectrum base operations, training and equipping capability for service members that will generally transition to operations in the Middle East or Central Asia.

"The Kuwait Base Operations and Security Support Services contract provides the full spectrum of base operations."

"This contract modification allows Vectrus to continue to provide exceptional value through strong performance on the largest US military footprint in the Middle East."

In addition, the company secured another contract modification to the previously awarded Turkey-Spain Base Maintenance Contract (TSBMC).

The estimated $22m deal will see the company supporting contingency personnel surge for Operation Inherent Resolve.

Work under the contract will be carried out at Incirlik Air Base, Turkey, and is scheduled for completion by 27 March 2017.

Last year, Vectrus Systems secured a prime position for the US Air Force's (USAF) Air Force Contract Augmentation Programme (AFCAP IV) that is valued at up to $5bn.

Vectrus was one of eight companies selected for this indefinite-delivery / indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract.
